Author Barry Finlayabout this book: A simple visit to the family doctor for an annual check-up changed Barry Finlay's life forever. High triglyceride levels led to a strong suggestion that he improve his diet and fitness levels, which had deteriorated as a result of 30 plus years working behind a desk. He took the doctor at his word, joined a fitness club, hired a personal trainer and climbed Africa's highest mountain at age 60 with his son, Chris.

Kilimanjaro and Beyond takes the reader on the pair's journey from getting off the couch to making their way up the mountain. It is a journey full of warmth, humor, determination and adventure. But it didn't end on the mountain. They chose to use the mountain as an opportunity to raise money to help the children of Tanzania. Meeting the children at their school after the climb was the second half of the life-changing experience.

Readers will find Kilimanjaro and Beyond inspirational and leave them with the realization that they too can find their passion and pursue after their dreams. After all, as the author says, "Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep on climbing."
